im assuming that the PCi slot is only used to hold the card in place and provide power & that the actual DATA connection is via the SAS HBA socket ?

The SAS HBA (Host Bus Adapter) is for connecting other high-latency devices like HDDs via backplane to the Card hence the name "Host" . This Flash Accelerator can act like a cache for HDDs or even work independent as a seperated tier. DATA goes via PCI

According to SUN:
"
To optimize application performance, solution architects can strategically deploy the card as a fast storage tier or data cache between the host processor and higher latency disk storage.
In addition to providing low latency storage, the card can also function as a host bus adapter (HBA), enabling it to support a server’s internal drive backplane and up to eight serial attached SCSI (SAS) or serial ATA (SATA) devices.

U welcome, can you please post benchmarks after building is done? (via CrystalDiskMark for example). Im very interested in these scores, maybe this low-profile card is suitable for another older SFF system.

This is my Samsung PM961 (OEM) 256GB M.2:
